Can anemia during pregnancy harm the fetus? I’m four months pregnant and was just diagnosed with anemia. Could this be harming my unborn child?

.

Possible, unlikely.: Maternal anemia is grossly overdiagnosed during pregnancy in the U.S.; british studies have proven that the best maternal hemoglobin is 9-11 g/dl as a nadir around 28 weeks. If you are in that range you and the baby are just fine. I would get concerned if this gets below 8-9 g/dl and try oral iron supplementation. Consider electrophoresis if never done before to exclude hemoglobinopathies. ...Read more

What does a 7 week fetus look like can you describe?

What does a 7 week fetus look like can you describe?

Google it: Why don't you go to www.Google.Com and type in 7 week fetus and then look under images. That will get you a lot farther than any description i can provide. On ultrasound at 7 weeks it looks like a shadowy grey tube with 4 little arm buds, a yolk sac and maybe one can see an amniotic sac as well. ...Read more

What are the effects of general anesthesia from surgery on a four week fetus?

What are the effects of general anesthesia from surgery  on a four week fetus?

Unknown: It is hard totellwhat the effects might be because no one will do a study on pregnant women. In general, it is best to put off any elective surgery and anesthesia until pregnancy is over. If you can't for some reason, the anesthesiologist will select the agents and techniques least likely to cause problems. ...Read more

Anatomy survey: Is typically performed between 18 and 22 weeks gestational age. At that time, the fetal anatomy has developed well enough to detect most anomalies. The arms, legs, hands and feet are typically part of a routine anatomy survey, so abnormalities should be identified at that time. ...Read more

What does a 4 month old fetus kick feel like? Is it like a thump coming from the inside?

Would i feel any physical difference or feel ill if my immune system started to create antibodies against my fetus? 4 months pregnant and a rhesus neg

Would i feel any physical difference or feel ill if my immune system started to create antibodies against my fetus? 4 months pregnant and a rhesus neg

HIghly unlikely: Being anxious about the fetus is common, but you are really talking about something extremely rare especially when you do not have an autoimmune disease. Remember that maternal anxiety during pregnancy can adversely impact the health of the infant and thus you should just enjoy the experience. If the father is rh positive, you may potentially become rh positive from the pregnancy. ...Read more
